Pancakes for Breakfast: White Chocolate Raspberry

A day that starts with pancakes is always a good day. Here's a healthy breakfast recipe that would be great in soft food stage as they are super tender/soft and protein packed...

Shelly's White Chocolate Raspberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes

1/2 cup Cottage Cheese (I use pre-mixed cottage cheese with pineapple)
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free White Chocolate Pudding Mix, dry
12-15 Fresh Raspberries
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Raspberry Jam (I use Smucker's Simply Fruit), nuked

Whiz in mini food processor. Spray pan with nonstick spray. Cook on low till bubbles appear, press 2 halved raspberries into each pancake, flip. Cook till done. Nuke SF Raspberry Jam for 25 seconds so it drizzles well. Serve each pancake with a drizzle of warmed jam and more fresh raspberries. Makes 4 small pancakes (pictured) or 8 silver dollar size.

These are very tender pancakes so smaller is better for flipping. They won't get any style points but they taste yummy. You could also do 1/2 cottage cheese, 1/2 ricotta cheese or all ricotta cheese (a little firmer)

You'll flip for these other Eggface Pancake creations:

Hi Michelle! I finally made just the plain version of these. I was lactose intolerant post op, but now at 6 mos I'm starting to try dairy (very slowly) and it's going well. So I have made these twice and I'm in love. I can only eat half of what it makes, but boy am I happy! My dog's happy, too, he gets what I can't eat. Sounds like your surgery went well, good to hear.
Thanks for all your recipies and sharing with us your ups and downs, it just has made a big difference to me. Amie
